on writing

"Writing is an obsessive-compulsive disorder." – T. Coraghessan Boyle

I really thought it was…then I went to work in a factory, then I had kids, then I thought it was useless…Now I think it’s just another form of loneliness.


  1. Oh this is sad.

    One of my students got a job working as TC Boyle's editorial assistant. She works 16 hour days but still loves her job.

  2. Everyone who feels the need to write it's because they have something to say, to write out loud. I don't think it's just loneliness. It can also be commotion, an outflow for pain or merely love... Everyone has a universe inside them.
